PVs are about to force themselves back into the forefront of building related renewables having for many years been the high-profile technology hampered by a long payback. Now advances in technology, falling prices and new approaches to funding along with the government´s new feed-in tariff proposals are promising to make photovoltaics a central issue in sustainable architecture.
Ray Noble, Renewable Energy Association on government initiatives and the latest trends in technology and funding
Simon Roberts, Arup on building integrated PV and recent case studies
Towards Zero Energy is a series of events hosted by Product Innovation in Architecture (PIA)
After the lectures Arup and Birkhäuser cordially invite you celebrate the publication of Building Integrated Photovoltaics - A Handbook by Simon Roberts and Nicolò Guariento
Published by Birkhäuser, aimed at architects and designers. It addresses PV-technology as one more building cladding option for new buildings and for the renovation of existing buildings.
The event is free to attend and will be followed by a drinks reception.
